- How to Lose Fat
Rehydration Key Point:
For example, an 80kg person should drink at least 3.2 litres of water per day
This crucial step seems so simple and yet when about 90% of our clients come to us, they are actually dehydrated.
Thirst is one of the last signs of dehydration. If you suffer from any of the following;
In extreme cases (these occur when your total fluid loss reaches 5%), you may experience;
You can overcome these problems by:
In order to be hydrated, your body should be between 60-70% water. When many of our clients come to us, they are even as low as 44% of their body is made up of water. In other words very dehydrated.
Even if you are drinking 2-3L of water a day, you could still be dehydrated. This is where electrolytes are so important.
If you are dehydrated, your body will prioritise your really important bodily functions (brain, blood, etc) with any water you drink. Unfortunately, if there isn't enough left over for what we want, then fat loss simply won't happen.
Because of the way our water balance works, we need electrolytes to maintain our levels of hydration. Without enough electrolytes, our water balance gets messed up, and we end up dehydrated. This is a major cause of dehydration, even if we drink 'lots' of water!

The "technical reasons" that Hydration will help with Fat Loss:
Once you have a fat cell, you won't lose it. You can only "deflate it". So your fat cells will always still be in your body. Since fat gets filled with toxins. One of the key ways to "lose fat" or deflate your fat cells, is to get rid of toxins.
Water is needed to flush toxins from your system. Without enough water in your system to function, it won't clear out the toxins effectively and a build up of toxins will remain stagnant in your system.
These toxins will lead to excess fat and so many other symptoms, like the ones listed above.
To overcome many health problems, including fat loss, DRINK WATER.
Within a short amount of time, you will find your hydration levels going up and your dehydration symptoms starting to decrease.
Not only that, but your body fat percentage may start to drop!
